Sleep Centre

What is the Sleep Centre?

The function of the Sleep Centre is to diagnose problems related to sleep disorders and their medical and psychiatric impact on the individual. The Centre staff also direct appropriate management and treatment strategies for sleep disorders.

The state-of-the-art 3-bed laboratory has the diagnostic capacity to investigate all sleep disorders. Patients, by referral only, are assessed for a variety of sleep disorders including obstructive sleep apnea, narcolepsy/cataplexy, periodic limb movement disorder, nocturnal epilepsy, etc.

What I need to know:

Referrals to the Sleep Centre are only accepted from a physician or a nurse practitioner.

Diagnosis is determined, treatment initiated and patients are returned to the care of the referring physician.

Assessment and diagnostic services:  the clinic functions as a consultation service for patients.  Referrals are triaged based on referral information.

The Centre provides technical diagnostic and treatment services, including: overnight sleep EEG recording, nocturnal respiratory function, movement monitoring, as well as daytime sleep latency testing.

Outpatient Sleep Testing Program: This service is directed to patients with suspected sleep apnea. Patients, by referral only, come into the Sleep Centre and are instrumented with a respiratory monitoring device which they take home with them, wear that night and return the next day. The information recorded can be used to diagnose sleep disorder breathing.
